"Him a lord of alchemy."
Tia Dalma on the Shadow Lord[src]

Alchemy was an influential philosophical tradition whose practitioners have, from antiquity, claimed it to be the precursor to profound powers. The defining objectives of alchemy are varied; these include the creation of the fabled philosopher's stone, the ability to transform base metals into the noble metals, gold or silver; and the elixir of life, which confers youth and immortality. But alchemy differed significantly from science in its practices related to mythology, magic, religion, and spirituality. The Shadow Lord was a known alchemist the Seven Seas had ever known.

Behind the scenes

  • The interior of Blackbeard's cabin was built on B Stage at Pinewood Studios. It included a large section of the stained glass window. "We had a good time dressing the set," says John Myhre, "because our incarnation of Blackbeard has supernatural powers, so we have many objects of the occult spread about, as well as more typical seafaring charts and navigational equipment. You have all his power and wealth and loot, but also a fantastic layer of magic and alchemy."[1]
